A tale of two papers

The Journal Sentinel and the State Journal both published stories today on Halloween in Madison. I'm not sure which to believe. The State Journal's story made last nights event look like a small number of rabble rousers who got pepper sprayed, and who probably deserved it. The Journal Sentinel, on the other hand, tries to make things look like it was just short of the night of the long knives, with gross police abuse of power. I'm leaning towards giving the State Journal's version of events a little more validity than the Journal Sentinel's. The Journal Sentinel seems just a little too sensational.

Was anybody there last night that can comment on this?

Read Letters in Bottles for a first hand account with pictures.
